Contraction feels like
Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 1:24 PM EST Dec 20, 2018 Minneapolis — After the Pistons traded for Blake Griffin last season, team owner Tom Gores said that they could use a few more stars like Griffin to get to where they wanted to be. Griffin has become the Pistons’ centerpiece, but if they’re going to take the next step toward becoming a perennial playoff team — or beyond — they could use a few more players like Reggie Bullock as well. In Wednesday’s win against the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime, Griffin (34 points) was the catalyst but Bullock was the engine, with a career-high 33 points. Griffin gets most of the attention, as the team leader and leading scorer, but Bullock is carving a niche as one of the Pistons’ most important players. It’s coming at a good time. Bullock is on the final year of his contract that’s paying him a salary-cap-friendly $2.5 million. He could command five times that when he … [Read more...] about Pistons’ Reggie Bullock: ‘I feel like I’m the best shooter’ in NBA
Opinion Matt Jarvis was in action for City's U23s this week, for the first time since March PICTURE: Jamie Honeywood Jamie Honeywood Whisper it quietly and touch wood at the same time, but the injury nightmare of Norwich City’s forgotten man Matt Jarvis may finally be coming to an end. The one-cap England international’s injuries have already robbed him of more than two seasons of his career but a patient approach to his return to training could yet pay off.The 32-year-old was back in action at Carrow Road on Thursday night, playing the first half of a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg II for City’s U23s, and looked surprisingly sharp.Having been eased back into full training in recent months, the man signed from West Ham in January 2016 for a reported £2.5m completed his scheduled 45 minutes in good shape.It was a very different evening to the worrying U23s game he had taken part in back in March, going down begrudgingly with barely 20 minutes played against … [Read more...] about David Freezer: It’s great to see Jarvis can finally ‘start feeling like a professional footballer again’

Just a decade ago, “socialism” was a dirty word in American politics. Debates over its merits were mostly limited to obscure blogs, niche magazines and political parties on the other side of the Atlantic. But more recently Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a handful of other politicians have breathed new life into the label, injecting a radical alternate vision for the U.S. economy into the mainstream political debate. Ahead of the midterms, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and Kansas’ James Thompson have proudly held up their endorsements from Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest socialist group, whose numbers have swelled since Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. For Fox News viewers, it’s the stuff of nightmares—not to mention that skittish Democrats fear alienating swing voters more comfortable with their party’s post-Lyndon B. Johnson incrementalism. According to a poll … [Read more...] about What Would a Socialist America Look Like?
